Tune in as Ria and Valli (Queerily Ever After) hop onto 2CC for Pride Month 2022, during which queer content will be featured throughout the month of June. For the second episode, the spotlight is on Cemetery Boys, the 2020 YA contemporary paranormal novel by Aiden Thomas (Lost in the Never Woods, The Sunbearer Trials). The journey of self-acceptance that Yadriel, a 16-year-old trans Latinx boy who lives in a traditional brujx cemetery community in East L.A., goes on while also trying to help out Julian Diaz, a rambunctious and deceased (possibly even murdered) classmate whose spirit he accidentally summoned, provides plenty of material for the hosts to discuss. Plus, you can hear them talk about subjects like Portrait of a Lady on Fire being the best lesbian movie, double-checking the pronunciations of words like “brujx” and “Riordan,” the traits of water signs, and Western society’s terrified view of the afterlife.

I live in my hometown of Seattle, Washington, where I'm delving into the career of a science-fiction author. The first story I dedicated myself to writing was about a young girl with telekinetic abilities. I'm still fascinated with superheroes, especially the ones in the Marvel Universe; it’s a tie between Spider-Man and Iron Man as my favorite. Coldplay, Ingrid Michaelson, Imagine Dragons, Ellie Goulding, and The Killers are just a few of the artists you would find me listening to while writing. --- Twitter: arthur_ant18 --- Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/144101970-arthur-howell View all posts by Arthur Howell
